“Small but mighty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

I was expecting deep fried seafood and fries - what a pleasant surprise! The seafood crepe was wonderful and the lobster roll looked tasty. Fresh, hot and delicious! Great staff!

“Happy break !”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

Cheap snacks, nice atmosphere of a sailor’s house, service is average and takes long but it’s a bargain waiting for the ferry overlooking the harbour along the St-Lawrence river.

“Lobster lovers should not miss this one...”

Far, far away. But lobster lovers should not miss this spot... especially when the sun set in the ocean… Great and super fresh seafood.

“"Stopped for lunch and got the best meal ever"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2011

Great little restaurant near the pier at Riviere-du-Loup. Took some effort in finding our way there even with the GPS but it was well worth it.
Restaurant is small but quaint with lots of windows overlooking the St. Lawrence and Ferry dock. The waitress who served us was very accomodating and full of personality.
The food can be summed up in one word ... AMAZING!
I had the Lobster Roll and my husband had the filet of Sole.
If you want an authentic riverside seafood shack experience, this is the place!

“Delicious Surprise!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2011

We were going whale watching and decided to find the location of the boat for the next morning - we happen to see this restaurant and decided to have dinner. I was with my husband and my three boys - and we absolutely loved the atmosphere and the food and the waitresses. They spoke broken English but we had no problem communicating. The menu was in both French and English - so we knew what we were ordering. They were efficient and quick - and the food was excellent. I recommend the lobster club - it was tasty and enjoyable - they also have the lobster club deluxe which gives you more lobster - but my lobster club was perfect. We loved this place so much we went back for lunch the next day after whale watching and had dinner there again the last night - had lobster roll which was ok - not enough lobster (they do have lobster roll deluxe) - the tilapia with rice was excellent - seafood pasta was great - and the seafood pizza was pretty good - but the one thing I will crave is the seafood soup - delicious pieces of lobster, fish and shrimp - in a creamy based soup - unbelievable!! Highly recommend this place for food, atmosphere and service.
